Not your every-day voyage .....
The fjords of Norway
Available dates in 2018 & 2019 .... see below

A remarkable number of humpback whales & orcas are hunting migrating groups of herring in the fjords of Norway.   This phenomenon has been on the increase for several years. Our friends at Waterproof Expeditions offer great opportunities for whale watching, photography and snorkeling in the crystal clear Arctic waters, which is an experience in itself!


Orcas & humpbacks

The best time of the year for this phenomena is November through the end of February when the balance between light and access to herring and whales is at its best. The winter days in Norway provide excellent light for photography. You will spend the daylight hours looking for whales and other wildlife and, if the opportunity occurs, snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

Aboard the newly rebuilt liveaboard yacht MV 'Malmö', you'll have the flexibility to follow the herring & the Orcas deep in the fjords to increase the chances of successful sightings.

During the darker hours you will enjoy the warm and cozy comfort of the expedition yacht while expert guides entertain you with presentations and educational information on wildlife and cinematography.

Excellent food is served with a fine selection of wines and beers.norw
